Eating just one salmon fillet a day could be the key to leading a healthier life!

In fact, a new study has found that eating around 120g of salmon fillet a day could help keep your blood pressure at optimal levels.

Psst… did you know we have a HEAP of healthy recipes including salmon on our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge?!

Researchers from Macau University analysed data from 70 studies that included 5,000 participants aged between 22 to 86.

Remarkably, they found 3 or more grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day lowered blood pressure in just 10 weeks! Salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids.

“Most of the studies reported on fish oil supplements rather than on EPA and DHA omega-3’s consumed in food, which suggests supplements may be an alternative for those who cannot eat fatty fish such as salmon regularly,” says Dr Xinzhi Li, study author.

“Algae supplements with EPA and DHA fatty acids are also an option for people who do not consume fish or other animal products.

“Our study supports the FDA guidance that EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by lowering high blood pressure, especially among people already diagnosed with hypertension.”
